The four «pillars» at BHMS are quality education, assured internship, personal development and international career placement. Each pillar plays a key role in our mission to provide the growing global hospitality and service management industry with quality employees, who are eager to demonstrate their management potential. Quality academic education, as the first pillar, gives students the academic and theoretical knowledge. Assured internship, as the second pillar, allows students to apply the knowledge into practice on the job. Personal and professional development, the third and most important pillar, provides students with soft and social skills and discipline that motivates students, guides them, strengthens them and ultimately drives them to succeed. The successful outcome of all three pillars leads to the fourth pillar, a successful career placement. BHMS has its own placement company «Masterwork» which assists all graduates to gain their first international career position.
